Common Core: In 2012, Trinity Lutheran School adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These new academic standards are based on research and were developed collaboratively by a coalition of teachers, school leaders and education experts from 45 states. The Common Core State Standards serve as a consistent set of expectations for what students should learn and be able to do, so that we can ensure every student is on track for college and career readiness.
The Common Core State Standards are nationally-benchmarked, ensuring students are prepared to enter college and compete with their peers around the world in the increasingly competitive global economy. The adoption of these standards underscores Trinity Lutheran’s commitment to maintaining high academic standards for our students.
The Learning Center: An essential service to students who are experiencing academic difficulties in the classroom. It provides a multi-sensory learning time with limited distractions. Referred by the classroom teacher, children come individually or in small groups for lessons that concentrate on a particular area of the child’s classroom curriculum. Alternate learning techniques and extra practice prior to testing are provided to allow each child to perform to their highest potential.
